In eerste instantie riep ik tot Google "vind deze schrijver!". En Google antwoordde mij met een 1000-tal antwoorden.
In tweede instantie wendde ik mij tot Bol met een vergelijkbare vraag. Ook Bol kwam er niet goed uit, en bracht mij nog iets verder in verwarring.
In een laatste wanhoopspoging riep ik de hulp in van hemzelf. De grote. De enige echte. De cache eigenaar zelf. En hij, ja hij, bracht het uiteindelijk Eureka moment.
En ik dacht dat het goed was.

huh? een berg in Drenthe?! wat zal het hier 's winters super vertoeven zijn. vandaar waarschijnlijk dat het vandaag helemaal uitgestorven is.

Wat een GAVE kist!

GCYD9H Tooey's Adventure No. 1   geocaching  

#1927: 2 mei 2011
@1226

We prepared this cache weeks and weeks ago. It was advised we would prepare thoroughly. So we did.

We decided against dry suits, because in May temperatures would surely not be freezing we hoped.
We decided against wetsuits, because getting in to those would take a week or so. And let us not forget getting out of one of those is as difficult as getting rid of cockroaches.
We planned on bringing the yacht, but the Hummer broke down last week, and a Toyota Yaris is not really equipped for pulling a 100 feet yacht (with or without golden faucets)
So we decided on a rowboat. Simple and easy. Launch and row. Unfortunately we could not locate any rowboat rental agency on the shores of this lake. We have discovered the chicken with the golden egg as a bonus: rowboat rental at Loch Geoc! (we decided to name the lake a while ago).

So this morning after a night full of anxiety and little sleep, we rose. Strong were we as we prepared for our final battle. We demanded a full breakfast and got into the chariot. Ready for the mission.

When we finally approached ground zero we looked in aw. Beautiful scenery awaits us. Since We had no parking coordinates, I decided to drive up to the given coordinates and see how far we would come. After we nearly drowned in the wetlands (thanks for the warning about that...) indeed did we find floatation devices. And some numbers. The devices were carried to the car, the numbers copied into the GPS.
We decided on driving to the next coordinates because of all the weight we were now carrying. So being NON 5/5 cachers, we ended up at a power-line tower.

huh?

what?

why?

A few minutes later that part of the puzzle was solved, and we ended up at, indeed, a lake-like structure. Where of course we unpacked our goods. We tried to locate a start that was a much out of the wind as possible, just in case...

I frantickly started pumping away, only to discover the red one has met its creator. It will not fill up anymore. Air goes out as fast as in. So I decided to go for the one with all the different holes in it. It filled up pretty quickly.

Than we had lunch.

And a rest.

While we waited for the temperature to go up, and the wind to go down. Both refused to cooperate, so we went on and blew up the orange one. That took forever, so when we finally finished that,

We had a drink

And a rest

Than I whipped out my magic wand and did a trick. A magic trick. With my eyes. The waters parted, I felt like I could just pull the plug out of the bathtub. And I did. Just that.

Geen idee of dit nou leuk is. Zelfs na 2 weken ben ik flink ambivalent. De cache ligt namelijk helemalaal niet op het eiland, maar in een bosje ernaast. Aan de kant dus. En ik weet nog steeds niet of er op het eiland nou een briefje ligt, of dat je gewoon mazzel moet hebben.

You know: NETHER... as in flat. low. straight. no mountains... This is terrain rating gazillion to us :) It took us 25 minutes to come close, only to discover we "overshot". We were up too high, by a couple of meter, so a first quick descent was called for. How steep can a hill be?!?!
Around GZ it took a few minutes to locate the right rocks. It's not as if you can walk about in a straight line to get the GPSr's attention. But I spotted the box on an upward move. Are you sure the cache will survive winter this way???

ok. As stated in previous logs, the logbook (paper) is soaked. Since we had already planned lunch here, we took the time to dry the paper in the wind and the sun. It is now dry rescued. We will put the paper in a plastic baggie.

@owner: NO tb in cache, please mark missing. You may consider maintanance done.

great view over the loch. Unfortunately there was a family fishing nearby, and they were not the quietest.

@cacheowner: descriptions can (and should) be edited. This is a small plastic box, not the 4liter container you describe

Anyway, more to the point: Woot Woot! Jippie kajee! Behp behp! Toot! and many more words that end in an exclamation mark. First to find. This cache is so new it is not even in my Tomtom device. I glanced over it in cachemate software, which is updated bi-daily and decided to go for third, or maybe second. Turns out: FIRST TO FIND!

Holy moly. This was totally unexpected. We did not have a clue what we were looking for, so we went "over the hill" completely unprepared. Than we spotted the hole.
And since this is nesting season, we spotted a couple of thousand gulls of different types. After gazing at those (and not having read the information board...) we discovered penguins. Hundreds of them. At the most impossible locations. It took us well over 20 minutes to spot one flying and understanding they can not be penguins. We walked along the edge towards the smallest stack and than shot some pictures of the others.

Thank you for this cache!
